One of the fascinating aspects of managing a blog like The Elevator Speech is analyzing which posts generate the most traffic.
As of today, we’ve received more than 26,800 visits from across the United States and Canada, as well as from many nations overseas. We want to thank everyone for their views, subscriptions and comments, and we trust you’ve found value in the posts we’ve published on commercial real estate, office property management, Chicago and business.
Regular followers know we’ve expanded our commentary to take on other topics — those that do not specifically focus on office building management in Chicago.
That brings us to today’s post: An analysis of some of our most popular blog posts. From the list below, you can see that the top four posts in the past week don’t specifically address the office building industry:

Notice some similarities? For some reason, you — our readers — are fascinated with our posts on Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, and ways to cope with the brutal Chicago winter weather that can arrive as early as November.
We’re not sure why these two topics rate highly. The Cubs are in second-to-last place this season, and true winter is (fortunately) weeks away. Can you offer some insight? In addition, what other topics would you like to see us explore in The Elevator Speech? Please share your feedback.
